Well we' getting ready for the International Convention
in Las Vegas. I hope to see a lot of 26-M2 lions there. I would like to thank all the Lions clubs and 26-M2 for the generous gifts that I have received from them. Looking forward to all of the summer activities that all of our clubs will be having they are so much fun along with a lot of hard work. If I can serve any of you in any way, feel free to call.

Message from 1st Vice District Governor


With both conventions behind us I hope everyone had a good time, as Michelle and I did. We are looking forward to the International Convention in Las Vegas.

Soon summertime activities will be upon us, so please remember to us the billboards & signs that are available to your clubs to advertise your functions.

There are a lot of new and exciting things coming up and changes taking place in Lions and Our District. Please attend a cabinet meeting to find out about these new programs for your clubs. Governor visit forms will be available at the upcoming College of Knowledge, so please fill out a form and turn it in, as copies will also be mailed out in a few weeks.

Michelle and I are looking forward to visiting each and every club this coming year.

Thank you for all your support.

Yours in Lionism,
DGE Lion Joe Foster


Message from 2nd Vice District Governor

Lions of this Wonderful District,

Thank You for your Support and Confidence in voting me in as you 1st District Governor elect, I know Lion Jennifer and myself are looking to the next few Years.

With that being said, we are still looking to finish this year STRONG, we are currently leading the State in new members and as today we are a + 18 for the year. Way to go M2. Lets keep it up and show why we strive to be #1.

The District Convention is now only a memory and a Great time was had by All, International Director Tom and Lion Gillian said that the convention was one of the Best they have ever been to.

The State Convention is next, April 26-29, we are hosting it this year and I would LOVE to see everyone there. We are welcoming many Lions from around the State and a Past International President from New York, come join us...

As PDG Debbie says ... " TODAY IS THE DAY " !! make plans to come, bring your club members and your prospective members and show them how "Together We Can Do So Much."

Lastly, its the beginning of our busy time, BBQ's, Trivia nights, Ride for Kids Sight, etc. Get out there and support other clubs. If your Club is looking for Help in a Fundraiser, we can hook you up with clubs that want to partner. Turn your Fundraisers into FUNraisers and watch the smiles develop and you own club membership climb.

I am here for all of you, if you need me call me, if you have questions, wants or desires, contact me. If I don't have the answer, my cell phone has a number of someone that does.
Lets Enjoy Lions Together.

Yours in Lionism,
1st VDG-Elect George

Message from 2nd Vice District Governor - ELECT

Our journey continues! I have learned a lot from each of you in the years leading up to this election and I know that I I'll continue to learn and grow in Lionism. Special thanks to my family for their support and encouragement in ALL of my volunteer endeavors, the Wildwood Area Lions Club for their whole-hearted endorsement and Lion Devin Struttmann and PCC Charlie Hartmann for standing up to nominate me.

I am very excited about the 2018-2019 year and the plans being discussed to move our District forward. Thank you, also, to all of the PDGs who allowed me to serve on their cabinets. You have been my Guiding Lions for further leadership in our organization. I will continue to seek your guidance.

District 26-M2 has many dedicated leaders. Together we can make it work for the good of others. Where there's a need, there's a Lion!

2nd VDG-E Sandee Marshall
